This campaign dresser is my new favorite makeover. I found Ernest in relatively good shape at a local thrift store. He had a drab brown finish, but his brass hardware really caught my eye. Sorry, no before pictures- I have a bad habit of getting excited and diving right in.
I love the colorful graphics on this sweet little French Provincial end table. I started this project, got halfway through it, and realized I didn’t take any “before” pictures. Oops, sorry about that!
There is just something appealing about creating miniature scenes, whether it’s doll houses or fairy gardens or snow globes. Today, I want to show you how to make a teacup snow globe. Okay, it isn’t enclosed like a snow globe, but it has all the whimsy of one.
My mind seems to automatically jump to worst-case scenarios. I’m a worrier. Worry makes me sleepless and short-tempered, not a good recipe for godliness. God has called us to be warriors not worriers, but how do I get there?
God tells us to throw our cares in His lap and let Him deal with the turmoil. What a relief when I do that. Unfortunately, I tend to drag those things back to myself and gnaw on them awhile, then give them back to Him again. Yes, I play tug-o-war with God.
I have been working feverishly on projects for the upcoming market, though it feels like I haven’t accomplished much. I go in five different directions at once and then look around wondering where the time went. One project that I had planned to do for a long time was this Joy in the Morning Rooster Sign.
It’s odd how I can’t resist these MCM pieces. Odd because they are so far removed from the French Country style I love for my own home. I jumped right into this MidCentury Modern nightstand makeover without taking any before pictures. Oops!
